Chris McGrath comes on to bowl
These 2 have gotten in, seen off the initial tough period, now they must go on and score big hundreds and dont leave it for others... if they leave it for others u may or may not get to a big score..
Its a good time period to cash in on the hard work they put in seeing off Anderson and Broad..
Aaaaand another drop in the slips. Eng have been awful in thid aspect
Azhar Ali just poking at the ball outside off
Yeh to hoga...
Need to make it count now
Agar yeh donon successful ho jate hein 100s banane mein to yeh test Pakistan asaani se jeet jayega..
BIG if. Both don’t look good.
Shan bhi to look good nahi kar raha tha but he kept on battling and got 150+.
Fawad Alam ko 5 per batting karni chahye not 6..
Azhar Ali needs to score a hundred
He averages 56 in the domestic, got 12000 runs in the domestic, he is something reason why he is recalled and at 6, he wont have full chance to get a big score... atleast give him proper time to score a big 100.. At 6, he would be batting with tail mostly and you know our tail...
Fawad should be batting at 8
Abid gets hit in the tatteh ouch
Hmm but Asad is more experienced and bats at 5. 6 is ok for Fawad especially as he is making his comeback after 11 years so don’t want him in too early. Ideally when the ball is a bit old he can bat.
I would back Fawad to score a 100 if he bats at 5 regardless..
Azhar aur Abid ne atleast new ball purana kar diya hai... credit to them... they have seen off difficult start period..
They are putting some runs on the board too.. lets hope they take this partnership to atleast 100..
Credit to Eng dropped catches bhai
Need to try score 350
Dropped catches are a part of the game.. Shan had dropped catches too but he hung in and scored those 150 runs..
I agree Fawad is coming after a long time.. and its a gamble of sorts making him bat at 5... slowly take him to 5 if he scores consistently and topples Asad from 5 position..
If we take that gamble and he scores a 100, it can pay off too..
50 up. Only 300 more required.
But if he fails, then it might be curtains for him too so we have to be careful a bit..
Azhar is saving his career right now... important innings for him and team both..
Be careful Azhar.. it takes one delivery to get u out... it takes so much hard work to see off that new ball.. After lunch will be time to cash in on the hard work..
Spinner will come in after the lunch.. just see this off.. this is another difficult period.. Anderson is bowling well right now..
Abid ke pass strike rahe to acha hai is period mein.. Abid is looking more confident than Azhar right now.. Azhar is able to see off this period, he will score big..
Abid has a tendency of going after deliveries outside off stump.. he loves that cover drive just like Babar Azam.. u have to shut this shot if u have to be successful in England,,.
They are surviving, don’t look too confident however
Rain. End of day’s play.
Good session for Pakistan..
Will be a big session to cash in after lunch..
Spinner will come in at some stage..
They have seen off difficult early morning period. I think they should send Fawad at 5 now...
If u will take the risk and send Fawad at 5, there is a great chance he will score a century imo.. u have to take some risk to gain a lot..
Its overcast. These two will have to keep fighting in this session too. Atleast need to see off initial burst again. But much easier than first session.
